Principles of Movements I 1. One person or a small group are challenged by a Bible truth, usually a conviction issue. 2. Some specific area of need (their own community or a mission field) becomes a target audience/area where the conviction needs to be applied. One or more individuals feels called to go and meet the need. 3. The person proclaims the gospel, doing evangelism, and discipling those who respond: some converts, some Christians who respond to the vision.
Principles of Movements II 4. The ministry is build using a multiplication philosophy and a community of spirit (a new church) is formed within the new converts. Training is used to prepare workers to quickly extend the work to a wider target area. 5. Either a broader mission is chosen or the movement levels out into a stable church environment. Eventually a mission, a church and a leadership training methodology is established and institutionalized.
